Title

Women and the Environment: Eco- Feminism, its impact on transcending the borders of NE Region

Abstract

Eco-feminism which is of course an alternative perspective to redefine the term ‘femme totale’, has been proved to be distinguished from all relevant rather radical discourses that ascribed the root cause of gender discrimination or gender inequality to certain dictates of patriarchy. Given that context, this research article focuses on how North Eastern regional politics have stunted the growth of women as an independent authority, how consistently has denied grass root women of their right to education, health, well-being, and their entry into politics, the decision-making democratic process, even though the ‘holy cows’ are capable of being at the helm of affairs. In this article, we would like to focus on how ecofeminism can be an alternative tool for reducing gender disparity in the NE States, especially in the matrilineal tribal society of NE states. The Research Methodology used here is mostly secondary data available in the public domain as well as a critical analysis of the socio-political and economic history of the country and NE states in particular. In addition, the researcher has garnered primary data using conducting a quantitative survey to assess the extent of gender disparity and development index in North Eastern States, especially Meghalaya and for that women’s political participation in the election process has been used as an indicator for development. The research population of 100 respondents had been chosen randomly but specifically targeted for the research purpose and thereafter categorized under two different segments: 1) those who directly hail from a political family or political dynasty and thereby have secured their berth in the election fray by their inheritance. 2) who do not belong to any political dynasty but ventured out of their domestic sphere having been persecuted long in their family life and aspire to get into the poll contests and thus ensure democratic rights by their eligibility and innate desire for self-accomplishment. The research gaps as identified in the process of the research that most of the scholars have relied mostly upon available data from government sources and other world welfare organizations and thus perspectives of actual beneficiaries, their demands, and aspirations for self-fulfillment or self-accomplishment are missing.

Key Words

ecofeminism, binary analytics, women as nurturers of Mother Earth, the myth of catching up development
